According to ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson, the Oakland Raiders will be without cornerback Ronald Bartell for several weeks after he suffered a broken shoulder blade during Monday night’s loss to the Chargers.
“Bartell has a broken left shoulder blade. Because no surgery is needed, his recovery time could be less than six weeks. There is hope he could be back in four weeks. Bartell is meeting with a specialist to get more information,” Williamson reported.
This is a tough break for the Raiders. They brought in Bartell as a free agent to be their number one corner.

The Oakland Raiders received a lot of discouraging medical news on Tuesday. Not only did wide receiver Jacoby Ford undergo foot surgery that might end his season, but starting cornerback Ronald Bartell sustained a broken shoulder blade in Monday's loss to San Diego, according to ESPN.com. Bartell's injury will not require surgery, and he could be back in 4-6 weeks. The...
It’s an old mantra for football analysts, but if there was ever a time to go for it on fourth down, it was in the MNF nightcap for Oakland. Their long snapper was out with a concussion early, making punts a risky proposition. However, at the end of the first half, the Raiders signaled their intentions by settling for a field goal on fourth and one from the one yard line, despite...
Oakland cornerback Pat Lee is no stranger to coming off the bench in emergency situations.
He did it in the Super Bowl two years ago while with Green Bay, helping the Packers secondary hold on after injuries put Charles Woodson and Sam Shields on the sidelines.
Now he's being asked to do the same for the Raiders - albeit on a significantly smaller stage.
Starter Ron Bartell...
On the heels of last night’s disastrous showing at home against the Chargers on Monday Night Football, the Raiders received more bad news today, as wide receiver Jacoby Ford will reportedly miss “a significant amount of time” this season and will have surgery to repair his injured foot, according to head coach Dennis Allen.
Ford revealed his injury is similar to the one that...
A Contra Costa Times report is calling injured Raiders receiver Denarius Moore "a lock" to play Sunday versus the Dolphins.Fantasy Spin:Moore skipped Monday night's game because of an injured hamstring. His presence reduces the values of fellow Oakland wideouts Darrius Heyward-Bey and Rod Streater.
Raiders receiver Jacoby Ford has opted to have surgery on his injured foot. He is out indefinitely.Fantasy Spin:Ford's absence should open the door for Rod Streater to play a larger role in the Oakland passing attack. He caught four passes including a two-yard touchdown in the season opener Monday night versus the Chargers.
The San Diego Chargers defeated the Oakland Raiders 22-14 on Monday night in front of a West Coast and sleepy East Coast television audience to what turned out to be a lackluster game. (I’m sorry to the east coast people who stayed up for such a sloppy performance.)
Man, finally the Black Hole was loud and full for once, but the Nation will forever remember this name, Trevor Goethel...

I already covered this game, but I recently learned something about NFL history.On September 10, 1978, the Raiders won a game against the Chargers in the most amazing manner-- an offensive fumble recovery for a touchdown.Even back then, NFL rules limited forward passes to once per play and only from behind the line of scrimmage. If the ball hit the ground, it was considered incomplete...
The Oakland Raiders have finalized a contract extension with fullback Marcel Reece, the team announced Tuesday.
A Pro Bowl alternate last year despite playing in just 12 contests, Reece has played in 31 career games with 20 starts in four seasons with the Raiders. He has 56 career receptions for 674 yards and five touchdowns, and has rushed for 234 yards on 48 attempts with one...
The Oakland Raiders have more problems than a bad long snapper, as the offense was manhandled and the defense lacked discipline.
Now that Kelly Clarkson and Travie McCoy have released anthems supporting their teams, it was only a matter of time before Pepsi let the original black and silver fan Ice Cube come out with his song “Come and Get It” for the Oakland Raiders.
